are you giving 98 points for the cocaine or the show ? Having trouble with the first set of this. The sound quality is suburb, almost too good.(every nuance of the sound is present for good or for ill)

Jerry and Keith are trying to find that pocket, but to my ears don't. they bounce around it at times, and nail it other places. I'll hold any further comments because I haven't got to the 2nd set yet, by the description it sounds like I'm in for a ride. I can't wait

These remarks are just my take on it. as I round the corner hear at GSET they are finishing this set with some sweet flurries, Donna's wailing like she stepped on a a nail sticking up through the stage floor. The hysterics of that woman, always surprise me , I know it's coming, just don't know what kind of dose your get it in. Really cool stuff to be able to enjoy these shows in the quality that we do. A lot of people have spent most of their life to make sure that The Grateful dead will part of our lives for many generations to come (barring 2012)

Peace

To answer your question, this one gets a high score for the extended second set. The Other One is an exceptional performance, and the bonus second jam sequence is top-notch. Brilliant sound quality is also good for a couple points.

The first sets from the tour are largely interchangable. 98 points is an excellent score, but this performance falls well short of the very best shows of the tour...

"Donna's wailing like she stepped on a nail sticking up through the stage floor"

Outstanding..

Also agree about even though you know it's coming, you are never sure about just how bad it's going to be. Kind of like V.D.

Sorry to the Donna-backers out there.
